As a native of Southern California, born and raised in Anaheim, Dr. Yeung realized early on that she never wanted to leave this beautiful state and wonderful weather. At the University of California, Los Angeles, she received both her undergraduate degree in Bachelor of Science and degree in Doctor of Dental Surgery. Her desire to work with children led her to a residency at the University of Southern California where she obtained her specialty certificate in Pediatric Dentistry and upon graduation, taught as an associate professor. Soon after, she was given the opportunity to teach as an attending in the dental division of the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles for a few years. She had also became actively involved as a board member of the Pediatric Dentistry Alumni Association of the University of Southern California for a number of years and as a mentor for the residents in the USC pediatric dentistry program. Now as a Board-certified Pediatric dentist, her time is devoted primarily to private practice, where she can educate parents and their children on preventive and comprehensive pediatric dental care, and on the mentoring program. In order to stay current on the latest developments in pediatric dentistry, she has always exceeded the continuing education requirements of California.
As a diplomat of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and a fellow of the American College of Pediatric Dentistry, she also belongs to a number of other professional organizations: American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, California Society of Pediatric Dentistry, California Dental Association, American Dental Association, Orange County Dental Society, and the Pediatric Dentistry Alumni Association of the University of Southern California.
The things she enjoys the most are painting, cooking and spending time with her husband and partner, Dr. David M. Kang, and their daughter, and her beloved pets.
